Domenico Di Sante joined the Flatiron Institute in 2021 as a Visiting Researcher at the Center for Computational Quantum Physics. He is an Assistant Professor at the University of Bologna. He earned a B.S. in physics at the University of L’Aquila in 2011 and a Ph.D. in physics in 2015. He subsequently was a postdoctoral fellow and young group leader at the Physics Department of the University of Würzburg.
Domenico’s research is focused on the numerical quantum simulations of the electronic properties of non-interacting and interacting material systems, with emphasis on topology and spin-orbit driven phenomena. Domenico is the principal investigator of an individual Marie Curie fellowship which aims at using machine learning applications in condensed matter problems.
